New Things

When I decided that I would step away from jewelry for awhile and started making more non-wearable art, I also told myself that I would push myself out of my comfort zone and make things that didn't necessarily conform to the "norms" of society.  I don't plan on making things that are way out there, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't playing it safe.  I didn't want to make something just because I thought others would like it, I wanted to make it because I liked it. 

And with that, I was off.  Making art that appealed to me again.  Because, let's face it, I was getting bored with the same old, same old.  I don't worry about if the colors I pick are in right now or if an image will be loved by all.  I just create.  It's wonderful.  And I'm hoping my passion will translate to my customers, new and existing.

Right now I'm working on a beaded tapestry that is a little out there.  I've gone with a non-traditional color scheme; purple, green, and red.  But I'm loving it.  I know J is a little on the fence.  He likes the purple and green, but when I showed him the small amounts of red I was going to add, he didn't seem so thrilled.  That's okay, I'm in love.

Here's a little look at what I'm up to....

I'm over half finished with the beadwork.  I would like to get it done by next week, but we'll see.  I have a busy weekend ahead again.  I just can't wait to see what it looks like finished.  Who knows, maybe I'll hate it and be sad because I wasted my time, only time will tell.  But as of right now, I like it.  I like it a lot.

Have any of you created something that was a little out of the norm?  Something that might be hit or miss?  What did you think once you were finished?   

I hope everyone has a fantastic Wednesday, and as always, never stop being creative.
